The factors affecting climate are changing all over the world. This phenomenon has multidimensional impacts on human livelihoods. Different groups of people are affected in different ways. Among all sectors, agriculture is highly dependent on climate variables. As a consequence, the socioeconomic profiles of farm as well as farmers are changing with the changing climate. In the existing literature there is a large gap about the relationship between climate change and the socioeconomic characteristics of livelihoods. This study is an attempt to find out a conclusive result about the relationship between the agents of climate change and the agents of agricultural sustainability, the effects of climate change on agriculture and socioeconomic status of the farmers, and their patterns of adaptation.
